The attitudes, feelings and relationships established years ago are recreated in these new moments as the family attempts to act as a unit once again. If the family is coming together, physically or otherwise, to assist with an ill or aging parent, how are the past relationships, conflicts, competitions and dynamics going to be activated once again?
For all those members who have never been to this planning event we highly encourage you to attend.
